Virtual Science Fair
The middle school science fair has gone virtual! NAIS, in conjunction with the Near East and South Asia Schools Association (NESA), is piloting a program that uses e-mentors (teachers, scientists, and graduate students) to work online with teams of eighth graders, who compete with other schools in the virtual fair. Find out how it works and how your school can participate. This is one of six workshops in the Schools of the Future workshop sequence.
PRESENTER: Whitney Elmore, Macon State College (GA)
